Triple layer chocolate cake with coconut mascarpone cream


For the cake

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of 3 round 20 cm cake pans.
  • In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar for at least 5 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until completely incorporated.
  • In the meantime, sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in to a bowl.
  • Remove mixing bowl from mixer and add the flour mixture. Gently fold with a spatula until completely combined.
  • Divide the mixture evenly in to the 3 prepared cake pans.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until you insert a toothpick in to the cake and it comes out dry and clean.
  •  Remove from oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes in the cake pans on a wire rack.
  • Turn the out and allow them to cool on the rack completely.

For the filling

  • Beat the butter and mascarpone in a mixer, until completely combined. The mixture should have the consistency of cream.
  •  Add the icing sugar in 4 batches and beat until completely incorporated.
  • Add the vanilla, salt and walnuts. Beat to combine. If the mixture is too thick, add a few spoonfuls of heavy cream to make it easier to mix.
  • When ready, set aside until needed.

For the chocolate ganache

  • In a bowl, add the chocolate and honey.
  • Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan until it almost comes to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate and honey.
  • Let the mixture sit for 1 minute and then stir with a wooden spoon until completely incorporated.
  • To finish, add the butter gradually in pieces. Stir to incorporate.
  • When ready, set aside until needed.

To assemble

  • Place the first layer of cake on a cake platter.
  • Spread 1/3 of the cream filling over it.
  • Repeat the exact same process for the remaining 2 layers of cake and cream filling.
  • Decorate with the chocolate ganache nicely over the cake to finish!
